Many people who follow me on Twitter or elsewhere on the Internet have come to know me for my positive affirmations and motivational thoughts that I post regularly throughout the day. What they do not know is that my life was once far from a bed of roses. I hit absolute rock bottom at the age of 25 and very nearly left this world way too early.
Much of my situation was self-imposed and based on some really wrong-headed thinking about life in general and my life in particular. I know all too well and all too personally how difficult life can get. I also know – from my experience – how critical it is that we master our thoughts and tilt them in a positive direction. That is why it has become my life mission to spread that message to everyone I can.
Today I am sharing a video from a song that came out at that moment in my journey. I consider this song to be one of the great motivational anthems in modern music. “Hold On” was released in 1990 by the singing trio Wilson Phillips. For me, this song came along right at this moment when I was facing my life or death situation and climbing my way back from the edge.
This song spoke to me as I was just “holding on for one more day” and hoping things “will go your way”. That’s where I was and the best I could think each day at that time.
This song – even 19 years later – still speaks to me. It’s popularity at the time and since indicates it has spoken to many others as well.
What a message of hope for a brand new week! This is a live version from the MTV awards that year.
“This year I am absolutely committed to being the person I came here to be!”
Every so often a song comes along that deserves special attention for its inspirational qualities. “The Climb” is the new song from teen star Miley Cyrus. The song appears on the soundtrack of Hanna Montana: The Movie. She has performed it twice on national TV in recent weeks – The Academy of Country Music Awards and American Idol.
Cyrus delivers an inspired, grown-up performance. The song has a catchy melody and a powerful beat that builds throughout. “The Climb” will be happily embedded in your mind for the day with just one listen.
The message is a variation on the “it’s not the destination, but the journey” theme. This affirmational song definitely makes a positive impact on your day. I highly recommend downloading it. I did!
Nice job, Miley! Enjoy.
Affirmations, meditation, and prayer are great ways to get your day off to a positive start. However, If you’re looking to mix it up, how about a college fight song?
College fight songs are music written specifically to inspire teams to higher performance and to excite fans. They are a great tool for getting your day off to a positive, rousing start. Of course, the sweetest fight song is always your school’s fight song. It’s one of those things that immediately energizes you, right? Why not use that to your advantage?
I always keep my favorites loaded on my mp3 player. It’s relatively easy to find an mp3 version of most fight songs on line. Many of the college marching band websites have versions.
In case, you don’t have a favorite here are my Top 10 most inspiring fight songs. I have linked to free downloadable versions of each. Simply right click to download.

“Whatever goal or dream I choose to pursue, I find success.”
Affirmations are such an underutilized tool in our society. Many people have mistakenly associated them with just a few areas of life – self-development, recovery, or sales. The fact is they are a simple and effective tool for improving nearly any area of your life where you want to improve or acheive.
